STUDENT WISH LIST WITH RIVER ISLAND

RI


Being a typical poor and lazy student myself, I know how hard it can be waking up in the morning let alone trying to think about what you're gunna wear for the rest of the week. When funds are low, (and sometimes morale depending on how long you've been slaving away in the library, a place at which you now call 'home') it's easy to rock the slob look all day er'y day to lectures. With this in mind, River Island recently set me the challenge to pull together 10 of my favourite picks which are great for student life. I'm mixing the smart with the casual by incorporating tailored styles with the comfiest looking shoes known to man. 

Cause' who doesn't want to rock fur lined sliders to their 9 o'clock lecture?




River Island are hooking up with UNiDAYS on Tuesday 21st- Thursday 23rd April offering 20% off (full priced products) in all stores (UK & ROI) and online.

BASIC B**CH


Although this is very much an 'all my clothes are currently in the wash for when I head back to uni tomorrow' outfit, a grey jumper and smart fitting trousers will always be my classic go to for when I'm feeling uninspired in the clothing department . 

Throw on a pair of Stan Smiths and my inner basic bitch will rejoice!

FLARE


JUMPER zara// SHIRT motel// JEANS h&m// MULES zara// SUNGLASSES vintage

I'll put my hands up and be the first one to admit that the new 70's trend just isn't for me. The different kinds of paisley patterns and brown suedes flying around the shops make me want to run to h&m basics section and never look back. However, there is one fine exception to the 70's trend and that is: 

The Flared Jean.

Flared jeans have to be the most flattering style for all. Styled with some heels, they make your legs go on for dayyyyyys. I am forever finding ways of adding a few extra inches to my short legs, so these jeans are a winner.

PINK NEW ADDITIONS


SUNSHINE.

Thank you for officially arriving in the UK. You have been dearly missed. Not only because my skin is in some serious need for some vitamin D lovin' but also because I have an excuse to add to my sunglasses collection.

I recently purchased these pink beauties after my favourite tortoise shell cat eye sunglasses broke. Although I still can't let these go (I fixed the hinge using a bobby pin which I do not recommend as it tends to poke me in the eye from time to time) I added to my collection by daring to go pink. 

I never thought I would say this but, I'm feeling this Barbie look.

WASHED OUT DENIM


HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

I'm keeping this blogpost short and sweet as it is cutting in to serious chocolate indulging time. I found this washed out denim jacket in the depths of my wardrobe whilst trying to do a little spring cleaning the other day. I love falling back in love with items of clothing you have forgotten about and it's perfect for the up and coming (says with crossed fingers) warmer weather.

I also found the perfect everyday culottes in h&m whilst shopping in Norwich last Thursday. At only £14.99, don't mind if I do.
